  • Alex was fantastic

    ‘Went to all of the sessions and he was brilliant, Levi went to two of his session and liked him too. I found the Anxiety session the most interesting and useful for us. Alex is a good presenter and he explained very well what he felt in different situations when growing up and why he behaved like he did and also how he managed to cope to reduce the Anxiety and other problems he experienced now that he is an Adult. It is great to see a successful young lad doing well even though he struggled at School and had to be home schooled, to end up running his own business, with the help of his family and his goal for the future is to try and be independent which he confirms is so hard to do without support even as an Adult. Such an inspiration to many. Many thanks for bringing him over’

    ‘I could only make the last sessions but thought Alex was fantastic. Thank you.’

    ‘Connor thought Alex was fantastic and really loved meeting him and listening to him talking.’
